And we don't realize how painful obedience can be until we are asked to die to self and say yes. I've been in my own Garden of Gethsemane before. And I'm back here again battling my own heart to look at this maneuvering by God as something to rejoice about. Since the day after Christmas, I've cried out in anguish. Repeatedly. Today, during worship in church, I totally surrendered my will to His. Come what may, I am His servant first and foremost. I go where He leads.
After church, I emailed my friend, Don, and mentioned I heard that the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC is very scenic and I'm looking forward to driving it. He then sent me this photo that he had taken during sunrise on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Thank you, Don. Abba used one of your photos once again! And I thank You, Abba, for Your Grace - poured out to me and over me - truly IS sufficient. And we journey on together.
Excitement is beginning to mount.
Because of You and Unto You,
